Guess what... The queue again.
So many good proposals, and these are only the ones in the feed right now.
What are we waiting for?
The real problem here is the close queue. 95K reviews pending and counting, and we still do no get any reputation for helping clear the queue.
Why not rewarding the users that really try to help here?
I make 40+ reputation in less than an hour with a question like this: WinterBash 2013
Why couldn't I make 1 rep for each close vote I review?
But ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd what good would that do?
Yeah, some users don't care about the reputation and would prefer getting StackOverflow coffee mugs, but let's face it, a lot of people here do things in order to get reputation or badges.
Why not encourage the people who are helping with the review queue by giving some reputation to those users?
I'm sure that simply showing that you are rewarded somehow for taking the time to clear the queue would encourage users to make their 20 votes a day.
No reputation is not important here but it's way better than getting nothing at all and I'm sure it would give some user the little extra push we need to clear that queue.
Let's be strategic...
Once we're there, why not throw in a few badges?
- Reach the close review limit 10 days in a row
We are not strategic right now, it really is an issue but we are not doing anything about it. Push the users just enough and they will clear the queue for you in a month.
I know this could encourage people to go and make random votes for the sake of getting the rep or badges but this is not such a big problem since the fact that people already voted to close a question already points out that the question has something wrong in it.
There are now perfect solutions for this. But let's try it and see what happens!
